After you rename the Site Director in SCT, use the Metasys Database Manager to update the Site Director and the device names in the JCI databases. When you perform the rename process in both the SCT and the Metasys Database Manager, you ensure that your upgraded site continues to access historical data.

To access the Metasys Rename Assistant, browse to C:\Program Files (x86)\Johnson Controls\Metasys Database Manager. Right-click Metasys Rename Assistant and select Run as administrator in the Metasys Database Manager folder.

During the rename process, you must uninstall and reinstall some Metasys software. You may require the following installation documents:
  • Metasys Server Installation and Upgrade Instructions (LIT-12012162)
  • SCT Installation and Upgrade Instructions (LIT-12012067)
Note: Starting at Release 8.1, the Metasys server, SCT computer, and network engines are installed with self-signed certificates, which enables encrypted network communication between the devices. To prevent a certificate warning during the rename process, you must remove the self-signed certificate that uses the old computer name.
